When it comes to hair removal, there are two main types of wax to choose from: hard wax and soft wax. Understanding the difference between the two can help you decide which one is best for your needs.
Used at Candee Skin, hard wax, also known as strip-less wax, is a type of wax that is applied to the skin in a thick layer and left to harden. Once it has hardened, it is then peeled off, taking the hair with it. Hard wax is generally preferred for removing hair from more sensitive areas, such as the bikini line or underarms, because it is less painful than soft wax. It is also a good choice for people with sensitive skin, as it is less likely to cause irritation or redness.
Soft wax, on the other hand, is applied to the skin in a thin layer and then removed with a strip of fabric. Soft wax is generally preferred for removing hair from larger areas, such as the legs or arms, because it is more efficient at removing larger amounts of hair at once. However, it can be more painful than hard wax because it removes the hair and the top layer of skin cells along with it.
Both hard wax and soft wax have their own benefits and drawbacks, and the best choice for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are unsure which one to use, it is always a good idea to consult with a professional esthetician or dermatologist. They can help you determine which type of wax and aftercare products are best suited for your skin type and hair removal needs.
